A former California television news anchor was arrested twice in a span of about nine hours this week after allegedly getting into a fight with his brother at a family member’s home and then later returning to look for his cellphone, reports say.

Frank Somerville, 65, is now facing multiple charges following the pair of incidents at a home in Berkeley, according to The Berkeley Scanner.

The website reported that police were first called to the home around 6:30 p.m. Monday for a situation involving the ex-KTVU anchor.

According to Somerville’s younger brother, Mark, Frank threatened their 91-year-old father before he asked him to leave. “Mark reportedly said he then got into a physical altercation with Frank and restrained him until officers arrived,” the report states.

Police determined that Frank was intoxicated and took him into custody on suspicion of criminal threats, battery, public intoxication and probation violation.  However, he then posted his $32,500 bail and got out of jail around 2:20 a.m. the next morning.

Police were then called again, as Frank showed back up at the same property to get his car and find his missing cellphone. Police found him drunk again, in his car, and arrested him for DUI and a probation violation.

Frank Somerville reportedly started working at KTVU in 1991, and then departed last year.
